Some of the games might be a little tricky for the youngest players. For example, in "Rainbow, the Spouting Trout," one child might be assigned to select the correct color while another is tasked with aiming the fish's spout. But the whole family will enjoy playing with the "Fireworks Spectacular" tool. Select from a palette of fireworks and arrange them on an event timeline. Then start the show and watch your pyrotechnic choreography light up the sky.

Most of the games allow players to print the resulting images, so they can be colored (with Crayola crayons, of course!). There's also a huge ditty bag of craft ideas, with clear directions, plus suggested books and videos to go along with each project. We do miss the detailed tour of How a Crayon Is Made that used to be on the site. There's a stripped-down version, but it serves mostly as a teaser to attract visitors to the Crayola Factory destination in Easton, Pa.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
